We discovered this through designer friends and were awed. Three salvaged barges recreated in an abandoned and unused water way on the river Spree add life, development, and community in what once was an unused and forgotten space. Hear the story @ www.badeschiff.de
We admire Yuki’ work for imagining a space’ potential regardless of it’s observed limitations while consistently inventing new definitions of what it is or experienced! You can see more of his work at yukihirotaguchi.com
This is our second season and first full year of developing the patios potential at Piccolo Sogno for edible produce. We started with a cold and long spring which brings particular challenges to the urban environment. One of our concerns is air circulation and how we will be accommodating plants within this challenge. We plan on adding depth to the space for a continuous crop rotation and adjustments to the site within the sites challenges for greater success! Here is the full story in Edible Chicago
The Art Institute unveiled its new “Piano” this weekend. The new Modern Wing by architect Renzo Piano is exceptional both in the way that it captures light and that it now permits the Art Institute to display modern works from 1900-1950 chronologically…which is a remarkable way for the viewer to grasp the relationship between artists, history and culture.
We are fervent believers in reintroducing native species to the environments in which we work. Not only is it the best thing for the space and the plants, ultimately it saves money and lessens the environmental impact of trying to care for a plant that is forced to live in conditions for which it is ill-suited.
Isn’t it remarkable that a vehicle that was designed in the 1950’s for practical utility and value for the money has evolved into such an iconic design?

I have invested the last eighteen months chasing an herb.
Who could have thought that I would ever say such a thing? Who might have guessed that this all would cause such a stir? Who would have guessed that one chef’s passion…would become a passion of my own?
Who would have thought that this beautiful little herb, would have had such a pronounced effect on me as a horticulturalist…and as a entreprenuer? Perhaps there is some kind of poetry in the fact that my days of late have been most profoundly affected…by an elusive, beautiful plant.
This Rogers Park “secret” is a source of culinary inspiration for me.
Katsu’s artistry, attention to detail and steadfast refusal to compromise on quality sets it apart from other sushi establishments in Chicago.
It is one of my personal favorites and an inspiration for our business.
Often smaller is better.

It never disappoints.
